I am new to Hamachi and have looked at whats out there but not really a help.

So I installed Hamachi on the SBS Server and ran it as a service. I loaded it on the remote Vista Ultimate x64 PC and created a network to join. It pings both ways so looks good. However I was told that I can map a network drive to the server to access certain programs. So shared Folder and set permissions. Set up user account. But cannot map the drive as it does not show on the network.
What am I doing wrong?

You would have to map the drive using the IP address such as:
net use z:  \\\sharename password /USER:YourDomain\UserName
-where is the Hamachi IP of the server. USER is not a variable.

However, SBS has all of this built-in, why not use it. The SBS VPN will automatically configure proper name resolution and even allow domain joined computers to connect to the VPN before logon to apply logon scripts and group policy. To configure see:

Thanx for that. I actually found the problem. It was the setting for block vunerable microsoft services. Unticked and viola. This is a temp solution whilst waiting for permanent direct link and user cals.
But you info is useful, Thanx
